Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard water is drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic chocolate malt and real organic cocoa used in this ale impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is the perfect marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate that will lead to smiles and refills. Samuel Smith's brews in traditional coppers, uses stone 'Yorkshire Squares' for fermentation, and ships every bottle from the brewery with great pride.

Out of all the English breweries I'm always interested in new Fullers and new stuff from these guys even though this is not new it's new in this state and pours a very dark brown hue with a beautiful rather creamy two finger head that just wants to stay all day,the smell is milky milky chocolate and its confronting its almost like a strong Milo with vanilla essence and the slightest touch of toasty malts,the mouthfeel is full bodied creamy with moderate carbonation and the tastes of milky chocolate,vanilla and toffee really push the boundaries of the sweetness and even though its more on the sweet side there is an effort on finish from the herbal hoppiness to try and level things out a little bit and I'm glad they did otherwise thus would be too sweet and after my first few golden beers tonight I wasn't looking for something like choc milk and gladly I didn't,I'd buy this again as its the perfect nightcap just not something you would start your session on cheers.
